Devon by Night, Surry Hills

Jealousy and I have never really made each other’s acquaintance. In a past life when I was actually dating people, I never minded if my girlfriend would hang out with her male friends or whatever. This was mainly due to my past self’s supreme confidence. In my mind, if you...

Tim Tams are an Australian classic like me taking a girl out to dinner to have her tell me we're great friends.

Scout’s Honour (Redfern)

I finished dinner five minutes ago yet I'm salivating. That's just a murderer's row of quality ingredients all under the one roof. It's like the cast of Love Actually.
Three Williams (Redfern)

Three Williams (Redfern)

My co-workers visited Three Williams in the morning and told me that the coffee was pretty amazing. Due to the fact that I have trust issues built up over years of lies from my parents (I'm still recovering from Santa being just some dude with a fake beard), I had...

Anita Cafe (La Mamma Del Gelato), Chippendale

Everyone that follows me on Instagram knows that I still have a bit of a problem when it comes to ice cream. So you can imagine the chain of events that unfolded upon me learning of a new gelato place that was garnering a heap of praise. I just had to...

Imagine if someone had told you that 'The Dark Knight' was just an okay movie. Pieces of my brain would still be scattered across the cinema floor if someone had managed to lower my expectations for the movie I watch every Valentine's Day (yes, Batman is my valentine. I'm pretty...
Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack should be a national heritage site. It should be placed on all 'places to visit' brochures of every city fortunate enough to boast one of (if not the best) burger franchises in the Milky Way. Am I being hyperbolic? Hell, I might be underselling the greatest burger experience...

Spoiler alert: We had two dessert courses because...just because, okay?

There is nothing wrong with having high expectations, that just means you have high standards and that you're not willing to settle for anything less than a superb crab po boy.
Chur Burger, Surry Hills (Katy Perry Edition)

Chur Burger, Surry Hills (Katy Perry Edition)

The pork belly burger had my heart racing in my skin tight jeans and it'll definitely be in my teenage dreams tonight.
The Choc Pot, Burwood

The Choc Pot, Burwood

One more time for dramatic effect; this might be the best tea I've ever had. The scent of passionfruit seduced me completely and the staff at the Choc Pot was really confused as to why I was suddenly topless in public view.

Ippudo Sydney, CBD

Do you remember your first kiss? I do. It was in a game of truth or dare and it was with a girl I didn't really like. There were half a dozen pre-pubescents watching me as I closed my eyes at the last second. Is it possible to ever recreate...
Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine might feature some of the most photogenic dishes in Sydney. I just couldn't believe how magnificent a sight the dumplings made encased in their bird's next container.
Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Eel sushi is my favourite. Whoever figured out that cream cheese and eel are best friends deserves whatever they want in life. My two eel topped morsels were quite large and topped with deep fried crisps. I ate these two so fast that the flavours barely registered. When they did,...
Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Both were very good by themselves, but combined in one bite with a slight dip into maple syrup? Scrumptous. Something about all the different flavours and textures working in harmony created the most fantastic food party in my mouth.
Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

I gasped slightly when this was placed on our table. The fish looked so intimidating and yet it was bathed in sweet and sour sauce. It reminded me of the scene in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when Neville imagined Professor Snape in his grandmother's clothing.

“I believe I can fly.” Yes, yes I did just open up my review with a lyric from a R.Kelly song. Say what you will about the man but the dude’s got pipes. However, I do not want to talk about R.Kelly. Though the man is the artist behind the song, that song is synonymous...

My favourite part of my daily routine is the walk from Central station to the office. Every day I see the same faces during my route. The blonde woman who’s always late, the Asian couple in constant relationship flux (they walk on opposite sides of the path if they’ve fought the night before and walk...

Three Williams (Part II) (Redfern)

My favourite part about being single is potential. I think this is one of the things single people enjoy most. You might meet someone at a grocery store, a library, a small house party, a taco stand, a Star Wars convention and start talking to them on a regular basis. Feelings might start developing, caterpillars...

Ask any of my long time homies for their most memorable Isaac quotes and this is most likely their response: “I don’t know…” Ask me which one of my most memorable quotes is and I’ll probably hit you with this one: “I’m not good looking enough to discriminate.” I’m treading a very fine line right...

Jones the Grocer, CBD

After work, most people like to have dinner with friends, maybe have a drink with colleagues or just go home to the comfort of loved ones. Me? I like going grocery shopping. Something about walking up and down the aisles hoping to snag a bargain or to discover a new product that can change my...

Hot Star Large Fried Chicken, CBD

I’ve always been told size doesn’t matter. That’s what I told my English teacher about my brain in year seven when she asked me to rewrite my article for the seventh time. That’s also what I told my ex-girlfriend after she made a snide remark about my lack of size. Hey man, I’m tall where...

I’m a huge Dragon Ball Z fan. It might not be the greatest anime of all time but it is easily my favourite. I watched it religiously growing up. It taught me so many lessons that I still carry with me to this day; the power of hard work, how your will can push you...

Long time readers will know that I’m not immune to slipping in the occasional Survivor reference. Full disclosure: It’s one of my favourite television shows of all time. Not just my favourite reality show, but one of my favourite shows period. It’s now the only reality show I watch and the only one I enjoy....

Brooklyn Social, Surry Hills

I have a lot of bad habits in my everyday life. I check my phone when I’m on dates (jokes, I don’t go on dates), I annoyingly readjust my hair and make it look worse, I laugh obnoxiously loudly at my own jokes and I call almost everyone I know ‘dude.’ Dude, it’s just who...
Coffee Tea & Me, Redfern

Coffee Tea & Me, Redfern

Coffee Tea and Me is a tiny cafe that you can completely miss even if you know exactly where it is. It just blends into its surroundings so well. It's like trying to spot me in an engineering lecture hall when you only have a vague idea as to what I actually look like.

I just let sit on my tongue as I thought about my life and wondered why Justin Timberlake didn't give his 'N Sync bandmates more time to perform at the MTV Music Awards last year.
